    Default MacBook Airport connection problem

    Hello Everyone,
    I am using a MacBook 2.16 C2D bought slightly more than a year back. I am having this weird problem of wi-fi connections through the Mac's airport card.
    I gets a lot of lag and I get errors displayed even though it is in full range. First time I click on a link I get error like page cannot be found and second time it opens perfectly.
    I have had the airport extreme card changed through warranty once and this new problem is happening through the new one too. I am out of warranty for my MacBook so I need your help.
    I have used Apple Airport express , Airport Extreme & now using Belkin wi-fi router to find similar problems between all of them.
    Please advise.
    Thanks & regards,
    Adit.

    Hmmm might not be to do with the card, try using different DNS settings ( Maybe your broadband provider doesnt supply good DNS), Try the Open DNS servers 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

    Hey thanks for your reply and advise. I shall try it out for sure. But I was just wondering, if that is the case then shouldn't my iPhone and also the windows based HP Pavilion also have that problem.
    They seem to work just fine without any issues. Like I said before I also had the airport card changed under warranty about 3 months back.
    Thanks & regards,
    Adit.

    I too have a similar strange problem... I have a Powerbook 17" running 10.4.11. I have to restart the comp regularly else it stops opening webpages (either in Safari or Firofox). My other comps on the same wi-fi network work fine... Tried using the open DNS servers as suggested above, no luck.. Can anyone please help?

    Hi Firoze,
    I had the same problem with the factory fitted Airport card and it was under warranty so I could get it changed. Now the warranty is just over and newer problems come into picture.
    I tried changing 3 base stations and all new ones would work well for 7-10 days and then the same problem would arise.
    Now with the new Airport card at least it is not as bad as before but I still keep getting lag and packet loss. And the problem is surely not with the service provider for sure bcoz all the others work just fine.
    Wish someone can help with the solution. I am considering upgrading to Leopard. Probably it might change the airport firmware or something and that might help.
    Regards,
    Adit.

    Just a few tips to troubleshoot...

    try pluging it into the router via/ethernet. then try other wireless networks ... If both worked then it's definitely your airport card. If that's so, then yes, upgrading to leopard would help.
